The Reds have also won all six league matches at the start of 2019/2020.

“It is great, nobody expected this 20, 10, five, four years ago that I would be standing here,” Klopp said upon receiving his award.

“We know what an incredible job you Mauricio Pochettino did and what Pep did. I have to say thank you to my outstanding club Liverpool FC.

“To the owners thank you, they gave me an incredible team. I have to thank my team – as a coach you can only be as good as your team is. I’m really proud of being manager of such an incredible bunch of players.

“This is an individual prize, I don’t 100% understand individual prizes, I’m here for a lot of people.”

Megan Rapinoe has been named the Best FIFA Women’s Player ahead of USA team-mate Alex Morgan and England’s Lucy Bronze.

She won the gong with 46 per cent of the ranking points, ahead of Morgan (42 per cent) and Bronze (29 per cent) while England striker and Bronze’s team-mate Ellen White was voted tenth overall.

Rapinoe, 34, won the Golden Boot for most goals and Golden Ball for best player at the Women’s World Cup earlier this summer after helping the USA win the tournament with six goals and three assists.
